Trainer David Ferraris will wait on the availability of jockey Anthony Delpech for his prime Mercedes Benz Hong Kong Derby candidate, Vengeance Of Rain. Delpech pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding at Happy Valley on Wednesday night, leaving him with a two-day ban and an $80,000 fine, which would have cost him the Derby ride but he informed Ferraris yesterday that he planned to appeal. 'I've had several inquiries but I prefer to wait and see what happens with Anthony - he's been winning on the horse and I think it's important that he has the ride,' Ferraris said. 'I would dearly love to win a Derby here. When I look down the field, I think I have the right horse and I have a jockey that knows him well.' Ferraris will give Vengeance Of Rain his final serious work for the Derby tomorrow before racing at Sha Tin, when the gelding gallops with Hip Hip Hooray. He said: 'Hip Hip Hooray will be out in front of Vengeance Of Rain, who will do a mile and then pick up the other horse in the latter part for a good canter. He'll have one or two sprints on the dirt training track during next week but this will be his main work. Touch wood, everything seems right with him.' Ferraris said he was finally convinced that Vengeance Of Rain could win the Derby after the gelding's last run in the Centenary Vase. 'I have always felt it's a sign of a very good horse if they can come back from a break through injury and win, as he did when he beat Grand Zulu, and then do it again,' he said.
